NFL Betting Lines and NFL Prop Bets

The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs are upon us! That means there are only eight teams left in contention for the Lombardi Trophy. If you’re looking to wager on some football, the clock is quickly running out, so why not head on over to Bodog’s Sportsbook?

Every week, I pick against the line provided by Bodog. Last week, I went 3-1, giving me an overall record of 98-87-4. Now it’s time to do it all over again.

Also keep in mind that guys like Anquan Boldin and LaDainian Tomlinson may not play. This could greatly affect the outcome of their games, so make sure you’re informed before placing any football wagers.


My picks for the week are in bold print. If you decide to make some football bets yourself, good luck.

Saturday Games

Ravens +3 @ Titans -3

Cardinals +10 @ Panthers -10

Sunday Games

Eagles +4 @ Giants -4

Chargers +6 @ Steelers -6


In addition to offering wagers on the NFL games, Bodog also offers dozens upon dozens of prop bets for all facets of the game. Below are just a few examples. For a complete list, click on the Bodog link above.
